Biomedical Engineering: bachelor’s degree program at UAS Technikum Wien

What will I learn in this degree program?

The Biomedical Engineering bachelor’s degree program trains students to be experts in biomedical engineering. The program teaches technical know-how and medical knowledge. The interaction of these two fields has become an important part of modern medicine, and qualified experts are needed to integrate technology and medicine.

Accordingly, the contents of the degree program are concentrated in the fields of medicine and natural science/technology. Students are provided with a fundamental understanding of physical-chemical relationships, along with the ability to describe these with mathematical functions. General and organic chemistry are also part of the curriculum. These course contents enable the students to function as key partners for physicians and biologists.

What emphases are offered?

In addition to the broad basic knowledge students learn, starting in the fourth semester of the program they can choose from one of the following four emphases based on their interests and future career plans:

  • Medical Imaging and Data Engineering
  • Rehabilitation Engineering
  • Cell and Tissue Engineering
  • Medical and Hospital Engineering

Depending on the emphasis they select, students learn:

  • The most important medical technology methods in laboratories and hospitals
  • How to select and apply typical diagnosis and therapeutic procedures, taking into account the specific physical and technological aspects
  • To apply technical methods to biological fields (e.g. sensor technology, biomechanics, imaging) and to the function of surgical equipment and respiratory anesthesia equipment
  • To apply the specialized fundamentals of data processing, taking into account the special aspects of medicine
  • To apply the specialized fundamentals of data processing, taking into account the special aspects of medicine
  • To develop treatment possibilities in cases of malpositioning/joint instability/muscular insufficiencies in the lower extremities
  • To identify the fundamental principles of tissue engineering to obtain, grow, and characterize cells in vitro or in vivo as well as in combination with biomaterials
  • To use cell and tissue cultures for biological testing procedures

What will I be able to do in the field after earning this degree?

Graduates of the Biomedical Engineering degree program are sought-after experts in medical and technical fields.

  • Among other fields, they are employed in healthcare, institutional medicine, medical technology, and medical research.
  • For example, they work as product managers in the production of medical-technical equipment, as employees in medical laboratories, as researchers, as medical product consultants, and as safety engineers.
  • Their typical tasks include developing technical systems and managing hospital information systems as well as project management, quality assurance, and consulting.
